Hi folks!

I have an issue with my Firefoxes, but I am not sure if it is a bug or a feature.

Whenever I click on a link inside an app, e-mail or whatever, Firefox opens up with the usual startpage in the background and the linked page in the front. Is that normal behaviour? I would rather have Firefox open 1 window with the link I clicked on and without an additional window for the generic Firefox startpage.

I am also using the Multi-Account container addon, but experiencing the same behavious without that addon.

Thanks for your insights :). Henning

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Moving the screenshot function in Firefox 88 is a bad idea!

It's a very bad idea to move the screenshot function from the context menu in the address bar to a toolbar item you first have to position by customizing. This is exactly the kind of unnecessary interface change which annoys so many Firefox users. Okay, so why is it bad? Most "normal" users don't fiddle with interfaces, they accept it as it is. They expect functions they often use to stay in the same spot. If it's no longer there they think it's gone (and they're frustrated). They surely won't go looking for it in a customization menu. For me as a web designer the screenshot tool was extremely handy when dealing with clients, because it was very easy to explain where to find and how to use it, to send a screenshot of a website problem. Again, many common users don't know how to take screenshots with their system tools, so this was really helpful. Now, instead of explaining where to find it, I'll first have to explain how to customize the toolbar, what the item looks like, how to position it, etc. etc. The simplicity and helpfulness is gone. Suggestion: leave the screenshot function where it is by default, but offer the advanced users a way to make it a customizable item. Everyone is happy.

P.S. I only post this here, because the feedback site is currently deactivated.

Might I make a suggestion as to Allow a control to enable you to chose what Device is active for Voice input and other input options? My computer has more than one attached, and it keeps defaulting to another microphone. So I'd hope that eventually firefox will allow manual control switching for such device inputs.

Hi,

I have been using MS multiple desktop feature to separate my tasks to simplify work flow. For example Desktop 1 = Finance Desktop 2 = Coding etc.

In each desktop I had multiple tabs opened related to the subject

I noticed that Firefox only remembers the tabs last opened and not the ones opened in that specific desktop.

Anyway to make it so that Firefox remembers the tabs opened in the specific desktop assigned to it?

Thank you.

I'm working on an addon to automate taking screenshots of lecture slides. I'm using a canvas object to capture and save the file blobs and JSZip to zip everything together and download. But JSZip keeps throuhing the `unsupported file type` error. Even though blobs are supported.

Here's the relevant code I'm using Github File

I've submitted an issue to the maintainer which has some more debugging info. The script in the addon_context has some very quantum behaviour and changes output every time I console.log Github Issue

I'm wondering if there might be a problem on my end, with the way I'm generating and processing the blobs. The same code works in chromium based browser, I'm confused as to what Firefox does differently. Any help would be appreciated.

When I'm browsing articles or news stories or what-have-you on the web, I would like to be able to read the information I came from without all the distracting stuff on the sides and top (or worse, the kind of pop-ups that can't be blocked, because they are JS-generated in the same page). Article mode is great for this, but can I have it automatically enable to help prevent me from distracting myself?

When I click shift and right click always a context menu comes up and I would like to deactivate that. Concrete: I would like to draw arrows on a chessboard (lichess.org) with shift and rightclick, but then always a context menu comes up and distracts. This is very annoying and I would like to change that - though what I found so far wasn't that helpful for me.

Thank you very much in advance
